Not that virus, Restaurants, Stupid Government Oversight, Star Trek, Picard, Bad Science, and Alcohol
This is TIK TEK TOE, Episode 011. In this episode, Evan finally returns from a bout with a virus, but not that Virus, even though three weeks before, he was in China, in that part of China. We also talk about how to track said virus, restaurant ambiance, stupid government laws regarding privacy and copyright, social media alternatives, the new Star Trek series, “Picard,” being guilty until proven innocent, wrestling, bad science, and alcohol consumption.
